WWE: Why did Drew McIntyre’s first stint fail?
Drew McIntyre is at the height of his career: WWE champion who dominates Raw every week, but it hasn’t always been that way. His first WWE stint was completely different, although he was the “chosen one” chosen by Vince McMahon.
But what didn’t work? To explain it, it was Arn Anderson, a wrestling legend with a past on the WWF. Anderson explained in his podcast that the gimmick of the chosen one, the “chosen one”, was too difficult from a pressure point of view for a young man like Drew McIntyre, who at some point began to lose weight and become one because of the pressure, according to Vince McMahon too thin and unsuitable to take on the role predestined for him.
As we all know, Vince Wrestler has a strong physique and if you look at Drew McIntyre you can now say that he fully reflects the Chairman’s ideal of fighting, but in 2014, according to Arn Anderson, he seemed “a beginner in bodybuilder” .
The pressure on Drew McIntyre was very high, but after he was released, he managed to rebuild and make a name for himself worldwide. He returned to WWE and conquered the high point that he had missed in 2014.
